Very interesting plaques outlining geological and recent history; geographical pointers to local features, can get very hot on the roof top.

It is amazing to see the city from above, seeing the mountains around and knowing that this place is where the French revolution started, a must see if you are in that area.

Let the Bastille steal your breath away. Take the cable car that looks like the clacking metal ball desk toy up to the Bastille for stunning vistas over the city to the Alps beyond. Well worth the time.

There's not much to do up in the Bastille but enjoy the views over the city, especially in a beautiful sunny day. Fun to take the cable car across the river and up the hill.

I braved the trip in the "oeufs" to the Bastille. These are very small cable cars, only 6 passengers at a time and your face is all but pressed up against the plastic windows, but once you get to the top, it's worth it for...More
